Description: The Lime Inn restaurant is located in downtown Cruz Bay and has been a favorite between locals and visitors alike since 1984. Still owned and operated by owners Rich and Chris Meyer, your St. John experience is not complete without a visit to our open-air restaurant and a taste of our extensive menu. We are known for our wonderful staff and delicious and consistent meals. Join us for fresh grilled Caribbean Lobster or our whole jerk seasoned and pan seared snapper! You can also eat light with our selection of salads or our famous clam chowder. But don't forget, you can't finish up lunch or dinner without famous Key Lime pie. We are open for Lunch Monday thru Friday from 11:30 to 3, happy hour from Monday thru Saturday at our courtyard bar from 3-6 (1/2 priced drinks), and dinner Monday thru Friday from 5:30 to 10.

We were here on their first night of the offseason opening, and everything ran like a well oiled machine. The drinks (mojitos) were some of the best we've ever had, the New England clam chowder was better than anything you'll find in Boston, and our lobster rolls were amazing. Add great service, friendly locals, and a passionate owner and you... More

We like to eat at the bar after snorkeling, but have also eaten in the dining room. The food is always good. Occasionally the service can be spotty. We love the Caribbean lobster.

Some had oysters on the half as apps and others had oysters rockerfeller. One of the sides that day was potatoes au gratin which I initially declined. The... More

We went for all-you-can-eat shrimp on Wednesday night and really enjoyed it. The owner (I believe he was the owner, the gentleman acting as host) was really pleasant and made it a great experience. The service was quick and the food was delicious (though shrimp was peel-n-eat, so not deveined). There is a bar in the front - go in... More

Another couple recommended this restaurant. You pick your lobster based on weight. The best lobster I've had. Staff and owner is very friendly.

If you are visiting St. John & you love seafood, you must visit The Lime Inn for dinner. The restaurant is located in downtown Cruz Bay and has a great vibe to it as it's a small quaint open air restaurant with a great staff and amazing seafood.

Over the last decade this is a "go to" restaurant. Always a very good meal, excellent bar, great staff, and Rich is always a great host.

The food was great- my husband got a lobster, the staff helped open it as it is very time consuming. Staff was friendly and food was well priced, and delicious! Highly recommend
